Now, I have nothing to say except this dude is fucking nuts. And the scary part is that he will get signatures:
A Christian activist in California has filed a proposed ballot measure to create a ‘Sodomite Suppression Act’ that if passed, would execute all gay people in California by firing squad.
The ballot initiative was filed last week with the California Attorney General’s office in Sacramento by a man identified as Matt McLaughlin, who paid $200 to file the measure.
It claims: “The abominable crime against nature known as buggery, called also sodomy, is a monstrous evil that Almighty God, giver of freedom and liberty, commands us to suppress on pain of our utter destruction even as he overthrew Sodom and Gomorrha.”
“Seeing that it is better that offenders should die rather than that all of us should be killed by God’s just wrath against us for the folly of tolerating-wickedness in our midst, the People of California wisely command, in the fear of God, that any person who willingly touches another person of the same gender for purposes of sexual gratification be put to death by bullets to the head or by any other convenient method.”

A federal judge has struck down Nebraska’s ban on gay marriage, Omaha’s KETV reports:
According to an order filed in federal court Monday, Senior U.S. District Judge Joseph Bataillon said “all relevant state officials are ordered to treat same-sex couples the same as different sex couples in the context of processing a marriage license or determining the rights, protections, obligations or benefits of marriage.”
The order is effective March 9 at 8 a.m.

‘Looking’ heart throb Russell Tovey is stirring controversy in the LGBT community with comments he made recently around his not becoming an ‘effeminate’ gay. Via Fusion:
Russell Tovey is an actor who happens to be gay, stars in series about gay men, and has been a victim of a knife attack because he says he was wearing a cardigan in a town where men didn’t wear cardigans.
Now Tovey is being the bully. He’s essentially putting down other men who wear cardigans, or in his words “effeminate” men.
“I feel like I could have been really effeminate, if I hadn’t gone to the school I went to. Where I felt like I had to toughen up,” Tovey told the Guardian.
“If I’d have been able to relax, prance around, sing in the street, I might be a different person now. I thank my dad for that, for not allowing me to go down that path,” Tovey goes on to say.
Guess what, Russell? You should probably consult with your publicist before making such stupid statements. Isn’t your show ‘Looking’ trying to break stereotypes with an honest look at LGBT life? Your attitude is embarrassing as it is much harder to “prance” around as a cardigan-wearing effeminate man than to go down your path.
Now, cue the “my words were taken out of context” apology.
You may be sexy, Russell, but need some help in the brains department.
What do you think? Am I overreacting?
I've heard from political friends about how turning Grindr on in DC almost causes your phone to explode. Well, here are some gays found at this weekend's CPAC. In case you don't know what CPAC is, it is an annual conference with just about every Republican and conservative in attendence. Think Palin and Santorum.
Anyhoos, watch above.
